To Students of French

Charlotte Brontë, Shirley (1849)

Chapter 10:
She must give up taking French lessons. The language, he observed, was a bad and frivolous one at the best, and most of the works it boasted were bad and frivolous, highly injurious in their tendency to weak female minds.
Chapter 31:
You read French. Your mind is poisoned with French novels. You have imbibed French principles.
